SMS sender block in Drupal 6 provided by Ozeki SMS Module

This page demonstrates how you can implement SMS functionality into Drupal web sites with the help of Ozeki NG SMS Gateway. You need to download and install Ozeki SMS module (it is available below this page). After the installation of this module you can launch SMS services in an SMS sender block format on your web site. In practice it means that an SMS sender block appears on Drupal site and users can send SMS messages from it. To configure your SMS gateway seamless please follow the instructions and watch the video tutorials about the configuration steps.

To help you make a decision which network connection is best for you for sending SMS, we have prepared a webpage: Internet based SMS connections vs. GSM modem based (wireless) SMS connections.

How SMS sender block works

To your Drupal web site, first you need to download and install Ozeki SMS module. This module will ensure SMS functionality to your web site which means that users will be able to send SMS messages from Drupal sites. After the installation an SMS sender block will appear, you can specify its exact place during the configuration. In this block users need to provide a recipient phone number and compose a message. They can send the message by clicking on "Send message" button. Ozeki NG SMS Gateway will forward messages to the mobile network either with GSM modem connection or with IP SMS connection (Figure 1). Please read the configuration guide below to find the respective steps of the configuration separately.

Configuration steps for Drupal SMS (with SMS sender block)

First you need to download and extract ozekisms.zip. In our example I extracted it to the desktop (Figure 2).

Figure 2 - Ozeki SMS module on the desktop

Right click on the downloaded module and select "Copy" option (Figure 3).

Figure 3 - Copy the module

Paste the module into the modules folder of Drupal. The relative path to Drupal should be \sites\default\modules (Figure 4).

Figure 4 - Paste module

Start your browser and open your Drupal site (Figure 5).

Figure 5 - Open your Drupal site

Log into Drupal site with your username and password (Figure 6).

Figure 6 - Log into Drupal

Click on "Administer" menu and select "Modules" menu item (Figure 7).

Figure 7 - Click on "Modules"

Enable Ozeki SMS Module and click on "Save configuration" (Figure 8).

Now go to "Site configuration" in the menu and click on "Ozeki SMS Module settings" (Figure 9).

Figure 9 - Ozeki SMS Module settings

Here provide the following values:
IP address: it is the IP address of the computer where Ozeki NG SMS Gateway has been installed
HTTP Port Number: is the port of the built-in HTTP server of the gateway
Username and password: the username and password you use to log into Ozeki NG SMS Gateway
HTTP GET string: this will be queried through HTTP

(If you leave the default settings unchanged (even you leave the default username: "admin" and password: "abc123") and Ozeki NG SMS Gateway has been installed to the same computer as Drupal, then this module also will work properly.)

This HTTP GET string can be used with any other SMS gateway that has a built-in HTTP server.

Finally click on "Save configuration" (Figure 10).

Figure 10 - Provide values

Click on "Site building" and then on "Blocks" (Figure 11).

Figure 11 - Click on "Blocks"

Now grab "Block to send an SMS" and place it into one of the block where you wish it to appear. In our example it is placed into the right sidebar (Figure 12).

Figure 12 - Place the module where you want it to appear

As you can see on Figure 13 the block appears in the right sidebar. I enter the recipient phone number, compose a message and click on "Send message" to test the system.

In Ozeki NG SMS Gateway you can see that the message has been sent out to the recipient (Figure 14).
